Colour:

Please note colours in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings.


Condition:

This work is in very good condition. Very close inspection reveals some wear, rub marks and handling marks in places to all four edges and upper and lower right corner tips, with an associated speck of loss. There is an unobtrusive indentation towards the centre of the left vertical edge, associated to an irregularity in the stretcher and which appears to be original. Further extremely close inspection reveals some light cracking with associated losses running along the upper horizontal edge and a media accretion to the lower right vertical edge of the letter 'I'. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
